It’s time for the annual return of Cupid

Christmas and New Year are over and it’s time for the next great ‘holiday’ of 2017. Valentine’s day. Some would say the most romantic day of the year, others would say quite cringe worthy, but either way, it’s all about the lurrrrv. From bouquets of flowers or a tonne of chocolates, what better time to get married or to start the process with a gigantic proposal your other half is never going to forget.

When you’re planning your wedding, the key to remember is that you aren’t the only couple in love. Although some may not be phased, other couples attending your big day may feel cheated out of their own love fest. Create a vibe at your wedding which encourages the spreading of romance. This could be anything from shared desserts, heart shaped balloons or the great couples of the ages as your table names. Whatever it is that will make guests feel like Cupid is around, ready with his bow and arrow.

You may not be into that whole Valentines theme, that’s fine too. It’s all down to personal preference. If however you aren’t going to create a love nest on a large scale within your venue, why not get couples together with games. It doesn’t have to be a teenagers party with spin the bottle but why not start a love train with table games or the ever adult ‘I have never’ to get people interacting. If people have arrived single, it’s the perfect opportunity for YOU to play Cupid.

If a wedding is still a long way off and the first step is getting the ever nerve wracking proposal out of the way, what better date than Valentines – at least you’ll never forget your anniversary.

It’s important that you know what your partner wants from the proposal. Big, small, public, private – the possibilities are endless. Some people may find it cheesy to get engaged on what is dubbed the day of love, others however would love it so decide wisely. Think about the words you’re going to use and how you are going to deliver the big question. You want your partner to remember it as one of the happiest day of their lives so unique touches are the key to successful proposal.

Valentine’s day can be whatever you make it. Soppy and romantic, plain and simple, forgetful or the best day of your life. Whether you’re staying in, going out for dinner, popping the question or getting married surrounded by your family and friends, it’s special to everyone in its own unique way.


A massive thank you for providing an amazing and unique tent for our wedding. We were both so glad we went with the stretch tent for something a bit different and we couldn’t have been more pleased! All of our guests said how fabulous it looked! A big thank you also to everyone at Morton’s for helping and answering all of our questions in the run up to our big day. I definitely feel I know more about luxury toilets and generators! We would recommend Morton’s to anyone planning a wedding and wanting a tent which is a little different.

We were delighted with the marquee supplied by Morton’s Events.

Our guests were bowled over by the interlinking hexagonal “pods” (as we called them) and all commented on how special it made the wedding breakfast seem. We managed to accomodate 170 guests in plentiful space while making it seem intimate and cosy.

Mortons’ staff were incredibly helpful,flexible and obliging and decorated the marquee beautifully,with fairy lights and a fabulous starcloth ceiling over the dance “pod”.

Together with table decorations designed by my daughter,the effect created was magical,or as one guest put it “breathtaking.”

We would unhesitatingly advise any family contemplating a wedding in a marquee to opt for Morton’s.

Morton’s were professional, accurate, knowledgable and nothing seemed a problem.


The pods lend themselves in any situation and function and looked far better than we had both dreamed of.
Thank you Simon for making our day go without a hitch and for all your hard work and for what seemed like ours was the only function that year!

We had Mortons marques for our daughters wedding. With 200 guests we had 5 pods, a 5×5 square for the bar area and another as the entrance.

The seating for the guests wrapped round the dance floor giving a wonderful view to all and creating a great atmosphere. Mortons were so helpful always at the end of the phone and the whole day and all preparations went to plan. We would definitely use them again.
